salt as required
1 teaspoon sugar
200 gm butter
2 teaspoon baking powder
4 cup flour
2 1/2 tablespoon black sesame seeds
pre-heat the oven to a temperature of 350 degree Celsius. In a large bowl, crumble cheese and add chopped parsley leaves to it. Start by pouring the flour in a large bowl along with baking powder, curd, salt, sugar. Knead it to a soft dough. Make small dough balls out of this now.
Flatten the dough balls using your palm and add a small amount of filling prepared at the first step in it. Fold the circle in half so that the edges get closed and the filling doesn’t come off. Now, take a baking tray and line it with the baking paper. One by one place all the dough balls seam side down and make sure your roll is oval.
Beat the eggs in a large bowl and coat the top of the each roll with the egg yolk using a brush. Sprinkle sesame seeds on top of it and slide it in the pre-heated oven. Bake until the balls puff up and turn golden brown in color. Bake for about 20-25 minutes and your Pogaca Tarifi is now ready to be served.
